Trump Reaffirms Commitment to Meet Kim Jong-un in Singapore

South Korea Pesident Moon Jae-in said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was committed to a summit with US President Donald Trump and complete denuclearisation.

The story points out that Jong-un's decision to react in a conciliatory way to Trump's abrupt cancelation of the June 12 summit in Singapore.

The summit, which was initially scheduled for June 12 in Singapore, was abruptly canceled last week by Trump who cited hostile comments from top North Korean officials and concern about the country's commitment to giving up its nuclear weapons.

The meetings between the officials from Washington and Pyongyang are expected to continue on Monday and Tuesday with the aim of organizing "any summit" between Trump and Kim on the North Korean nuclear program, it added.

Moon, who brokered the summit between Washington and Pyongyang, likely used Saturday's meeting to confirm Kim's willingness to enter nuclear negotiations with Trump and clarify what steps Kim has in mind in the process of denuclearization, said Hong Min, a senior analyst at Seoul's Korea Institute for National Unification. And I think there's a lot of good will. But he repeatedly refused to answer questions on the specifics of how North Korea would relinquish its nuclear weapons or if they would allow worldwide experts to inspect nuclear facilities. They also reportedly talked "frankly" about how they could make the potential summit between Kim and Trump a success. Kim agreed, Moon said. They allowed Moon to push for a U.S.

Speaking at length in St. Petersburg, Macron said that the worldwide community will continue to play its part in trying to achieve denuclearization in the Korean Peninsula.


"I just want to mention we're doing very well in terms of the summit with North Korea".

Moon said North Korea and the United States will soon start working-level talks to prepare for the Kim-Trump summit.

Surprised Singaporeans pursued North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday before realising the portly man with slick black hair near the Marina Bay Sands hotel was an impersonator.

On Saturday Moon said Kim reaffirmed his commitment to end his country's nuclear weapons program, but shared his key concern that the USA would work to destabilize his rule despite any security guarantees it offers.

His remarks came nearly simultaneously with the announcement by Moon about his meeting with the North Korean leader.

Tensions were calmed after Kim extended an olive branch by offering to send a delegation to the Winter Olympics in South Korea, sparking a rapid detente that led to Trump agreeing to hold direct talks with Pyongyang. However Kim Jong Un earlier indicated that neither the joint drills, nor the US military presence on the Korean Peninsula would not be an obstacle toward improving inter-Korean relations or in reaching a denuclearization deal with the U.S.
